After months of trying to locate a supply of carbon fibre cored, stainless helically wound ignition wire for the MSD ignition system fitted to the drag bike, I eventually found a source in this country. Spent a few hours replacing the leads, now 8 mm silicon, marking them up and crimping the terminals on with my new lead crimpers. All ready now for another start attempt.

What is your next modification plan for this car?
Btw, this is a clean build.

Well spotted, Pike!! I haven't put anything on here for ages as nothing has been done since the ignition leads. Really needs two people to attempt a start, and my usual helper, my Niece, is a matron at a major NHS hospital, so as you can guess, I haven't seen much of her ,as for some reason she's been busy!! Not happy with the fitting of the air-filters, so will be addressing that, otherwise we hope to get the bugger started and to appear at Dragstalgia running or not....

This man is ready for a tough rally. Btw, great build that you have here. I wonder what type of motorcycle exhaust system they run on this classic ride. :shock:

It might be of interest to the viewers of this thread to show you another bike I've built in the last 8 months. It's a Rickman Z900 fitted with an Eaton 45 supercharger. People don't understand why I'd do this to a bike purely for the road, but once a drag racer, always a drag racer!!
